"Be careful - poor interface and no refunds"

What do you like best?

The service is relatively cheap and somewhat easy to use

What do you dislike?

First of all, I tried using the promotions tab on my facebook business page to run the raffle I was using woobox to manage. The interface was horrible. When I clicked the raffle link, it brought me to a mostly blank promotions page with a small link in the corner that you had to click to see the full raffle page. I'm sure this was confusing for whoever tried to click the link, plus involved an extra click. I probably lost a good deal of leads this way, but had already paid for the service (you will have to pay to officially start your campaign) and was financially committed.

Second, when running a facebook campaign using woobox they give you the ability to launch a facebook ad from within woobox. While this sounds like a great feature. You are very limited in your control of the audience that sees the ad and other ad features. You then have to go into facebook ad manager to further refine your ad audience, etc... so what's the point of even providing this feature?

Third, the raffle manager is a little clunky and takes some getting used to.

Last, they have a NO REFUND policy so if you don't like the service, or forget to cancel you will not get your money back!

I think there are better services out there, including wishpond, which I recently used and worked much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They need to clean up the bugs interfacing with facebook. And a better refund policy would be appreciated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running a raffle contest to generate likes and engagement on facebook, building brand awareness, as well as generating web traffic and leads.

"Woobox Review"

What do you like best?

I love how simple it is to launch a campaign using the Woobox application. I've ran numerous social media custom tab campaigns through woobox. Setup includes just uploading your files and clicking the live button! It is as simple as that! You can also track your entrants, stats, and traffic through your campaign dashboard. I'd recommend this platform to anyone in the social media field trying to launch an offer, campaign, or quick quiz.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you need to program your own form into the dashboard as opposed to having a built in form (with fields such as first name, last name, email) that you can just add to your design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely add this to your Social Media deck!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Woobox to launch campaigns on Social Media to expand brand awareness and collect leads.

What Sweepstakes solution do you use?

"A Solid Tool for Handling a Variety of Social Promotions"

What do you like best?

The tool is easy to use and implement. It is rather easy to get started with building a complete Woobox social promotion. Woobox does a lot of the work for you, which is great. The price point is very reasonable as well, which is certainly a nice plus.

What do you dislike?

There doesn't seem to be a lot of customization or configuration that you can implement, unfortunately. I had to try another tool to be able to use custom fields for a sweepstakes, for example.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Woobox seems to be a jack of all, best of none when it comes to creating social promotions. There are plenty of business challenges where this type of platform could make a ton of sense. On the flip side, if you want a lot of depth - for example, a powerful tool specifically designed for conducting a sweepstakes - you may need to look elsewhere. We found the ability to customize and tweak promotions to be a little bit disappointing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Woobox is really easy to start offering a large range of social promotions. You don't have to do much work to set them up and make them work. There is little learning curve, and they are incredibly easy to set up. The promotions that we have run through Woobox allow us to generate new contacts, leads, and prospects. We have not used Woobox for any of its social advertising features - we have only used it for its promotion feature set.

"New to Woobox, but impressed"

What do you like best?

Makes it really easy to include adequate legal terms. Easy user interface. Works seamlessly across all social media outlets. Also, the name is fun!

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints at this time. I find the service to be very robust and it has met all my needs. I have used this to run social media contests across multiple platforms. It would be nice if it integrate its own random selection winner picker (those are terrible words, but I think you get my meaning.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try! I think you'll find it's easy and helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly Woobox has been used to run social media contest across multiple social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. It's made it really easy to monitor the contest and keep materials consist across all outlets.

"Great way to showcase your social media presence in a aesthetically pleasing way"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and configure, administrative panel is intuitive, lets you expand your reach by integrating several social media accounts.

What do you dislike?

The free plan may be limited, but it has an adequate amount of services available for those who cannot afford to purchase a paid plan.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great tool to increase your company/product's social media reach. There is a free plan you can use to test the software, with a limited amount of services to use. The paid account lets you use all their services depending on your participant and fan limit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With WooBox, my company's Facebook page can act as a portal to my other social media outlets which can increase the chances of new visits and engagement with the other services. This creates an all-around link with the social "element" of the company, thus increasing presence.

"Woobox is a great tool "

What do you like best?

I love the ease of connecting my social media accounts in Woobox.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike is that it seems to be a little crowded on the website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a little tricky at first but be patient with it! It's really easy to use once you get the hang of it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to choose a winner at random when I host contests on social media and it is much easier to do that and show proof of a random winner than to try and choose someone myself.

"Pretty Great, just a few limits."

What do you like best?

That I can run giveaways on my business page and not have to go through the hassle of counting entries, woobox picks them for me once I give it basic parameters.

What do you dislike?

That I can only pick giveaways on my business page. This would be a lot more useful if I could use it in groups etc by providing the post id link instead

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you thoroughly go through the platform when setting it up. I still occasionally get lost on it trying to remember where what I'm looking for is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Connection to customers, giveaways help with getting my business exposure and woobox makes that exposure process easier.

"Exceptional and Effective Social Media Contest Tool"

What do you like best?

It was really simple to embed and integrate into existing websites and social channels, especially Facebook, for contest involvement. We need a simple tool to cross 10 different and very clients.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike. It was simple and easy to setup and execute. Would be nice to have an external tool to build out a central "landing page" to cross varying participants into a funneled contest.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to solve how we can manage large or small contests and stay within an acceptable client budget.

"New Way To Market"

What do you like best?

I first saw this and was very interested in what it could do. If your trying to find a way to market with todays social media, this is the way to go. The user interface looks easy to use and has it made simple to use tools. Even makes it simple for features and other areas that you want to imbed into your Facebook or Youtube Channel. Very creative in getting into your site to market.

Interesting how it has tools like analysis to check your sites.

settings do make it easy to use and configure based on what your trying to apply based on page creature that you use. all with just a direct link.

I like that there are other people who have this and uploaded how to guides, tips and tricks.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was more features and ability to apply more tools and features. limited on social media.

templates would be nice to upload

Recommendations to others considering the product

Social media, is like the best place where people hangout. I think its like the 90s chatrooms. People live in this type of area and software. So why not try to corner the market with such creative and power tools.

Made very simple to use to use any link and urls to creative ads to generate and publish on media sites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Understanding if this is the right path but anything new is worth a try, especially in this market that is overgrowing on social media.

"Great way to host giveaways and boost Social Media Audience!!"

What do you like best?

I love that you can make tweeting something, sharing a post, visiting a site and such a requirement in order to enter. I especially like making it so that they can do certain tasks such as tweet using a certain hashtag or sharing the giveaway a daily entry effectively increasing your Social Media reach and engagement.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. I hate that making some of the Facebook related actions as required has gone away, but I understand that is Facebook policy and nothing to do with WooBox

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this to manage giveaways easily. It compiles the entries for us and even picks a winne rand notifies them! Makes it very easy and simple to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cost effective!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Polls, brackets, and contests for social media. Woobox has features that would take too much time for us to do manually.

"Woobox review"

What do you like best?

I like the easy to use interface. Woobox offers many types of surveys, polls, etc. can pull reports easily

What do you dislike?

I dont like the fact that they dont offer an option to verify an email address is real. When creating a voting poll you can only put up to 50 choices. When in the reporting section, you have to click to doenload your list. Sometimes it works and sometimes you have to try several times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a quick implementation for a survey or poll or quizz etc this is a good product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the need for a voting platform. The benefit is that it is a user friendly interface. You can quickly create what you need.

"Woobox gets the job done"

What do you like best?

Woobox allows for real-time updates and modifications to your sweepstakes or other promotion. It also allows the ability to write up your own HTML page for contesting, so nothing looks like a generic template, which is great.

What do you dislike?

More data on our contest entries, please.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out! It is a very affordable option, especially considering comparable products like OfferPop that cost $$$$

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Woobox creates an additional outlet for us to gather email addresses, which are essential to building our customer database.

What do you like best?

I like the interface and ease of use. It's not too complicated and for a new staff member taking over the platform from someone else, it is intuitive to use.

What do you dislike?

I prefer to use an Agency to do my campaigns and reduce time doing technical tasks. It is too pricey for what it is.

"WooBox"

What do you like best?

Woobox makes it super easy to install tabs on Facebook. It's been great to install Twitter, Instagram and YouTube as well as creating HTML Tabs to embed other apps.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that sometimes it's difficult to view when the apps are live. I often have to open a new incongito window to view my client's page and see how it looks publicly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

That using free tools always come with the price in the end and that you are missing some sort of the piece of the puzzle no matter what app you use. Overall Woobox is very clean and easy to use. It's an asset for any Facebook page.
